Crazy road rage driver PIT manoeuvres Toyota Prius and flees the scene
This shocking dashcam footage will leave your heart racing
We've all had bad days, got frustrated with other drivers, and perhaps even said a few choice words, but causing a crash out of sheer road rage is something that has never occurred to me.
Unfortunately, it seems the driver in this footage doesn't have the same clear moral conscience. In this shocking dashcam footage filmed in California, USA; The driver of the camera car manages to capture a three-car collision that was seemingly caused by a driver with a serious case of road rage.

The incident occurred on Stevens Creek Freeway in Sunnyvale, California. The film appears to show a silver Nissan Xterra SUV aggressively tailgating a Toyota Prius in the centre lane, before the driver loses their cool and sideswipes the Prius.
Unfortunately, another innocent bystander then gets caught up in the action, as the striken Prius plows sideways into an unsuspecting Mazda MPV, causing both cars to veer dangerously across the highway.

Both the Prius and the Mazda then slam hard into a concrete wall on the side of the freeway, suffering major damage in the process. The impact is so severe, that it causes the Prius to flip and roll twice.
The Xterra also suffers an impact as swerving away from the sideswipe caused the driver to lose control, go briefly onto two wheels and then slam into the central reservation. While the Xterra surely suffered some pretty extensive damage, the driver appears to continue driving in an aggressive manner and flees the scene.
While it is unclear what happened to the driver and car that caused the crash, the footage was sent to California Highway Patrol who are understood to be looking into the event.
Thankfully one Reddit user on the thread where the footage was posted suggested that there wasn't a significant medical response, so hopefully all involved were able to walk away from the crash.
